offensive, that practice prevent defense and mike is right in the sense governor romney got done what he needed to get done is get voters to give him another look. >> rose: people say the first 15 minutes is important. >> 15 minutes in, i was immediately taken back to the first kerry-bush debate. if you remember bush came out and he looked tired. he was a little bit pension lent and stumbled with his answers and kerry was there with the podium. the moment finally arrived, prepared himself and his momentum and confidence built throughout his entire debate and i saw the exact same thing tonight. president came out and looked like he under estimated his opponent a bit, was tired. and romney was short and to the point. as john was saying, the president won on overall time spoken by about five minutes. i would say romney made about 50 more plays. the president was huddling and romney got to the line and made his point. one thing that shouldn't be under estimated as we go forward is enjoyment. when we look back at the democratic convention, everybody in our business and everybody in po

whether john kerry was not the right guy to play mitt romney, anything like that? >> no, because, you know, i don't know how you can say that, because in a way, mitt romney and john kerry are very formal people, they are obviously well educated people with a kind of refinement about them, they aren't sloppy in any way, obnoxious in any way, they use firm language but both basically strong people, in the accomplishment, it was probably a very good pick but the romney that came in last night i would say you were right a couple of minutes ago, that romney was not predictable, he came in so strong and so in charge that he basically took over the room and i felt he was sufficient on that stage meaning the president didn't need to be on there for romney to put on the show or jim lehrer, it was romney control of that space and physical control of that space which was so dominant, i don't think we have seen anything like it before. >> rose:. >> in probably a presidential debate. >> rose: i also heard this was not a new romney in the context of have i seen him before. >> yes, mike barnicl

that is believable? >> i think the most effective ad that they have is on the air right now. it's capturing a small segment of the statement that governor romney made behind closed doors, not realized he was being taped, about the 47%. and it puts pictures of people who fall into that 47% on the screen and basically suggests that governor romney doesn't want to represent you and you and you. >>> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax, including veterans, elderly, the disabled. >> my job is not to worry about those people. >> doesn't the president have to worry about everyone? >>> what makes it effective is governor romney's voice. and the fact that when you listen to the extended statement, you can make a plausible case that the tone was dismissive and so the ad reinforces something that people are inclined to believe about a republican, and they do it by showing you governor romney saying something and now a second factor comes into play. he said it in private. and when we're judging messages, we have these shortcuts that we just come to trust. politicians sa

government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking obama, and ignoring the moderator's instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a better performance. the candidates will face off in two more debates. they have got just more five weeks to win over undecided voters. that's all for now on this edition of newsline. i'm yuko aotani in tokyo. thank you very much for joining us.

governor romney talks more about management and spending efficiency, paul ryan talks mainly about spending cuts as essential, even more so than changing the revenue base. right? >> i mean, i don't want to -- but your system -- >> how the suck eggs. >> that expression. >> what does that mean? >> you won't tell your grandmother how to suck eggs because grandmother knows. >> you know better than i your system with the elections every two years for congress, it is a very different system, we now have legislative fiv five-year terms, parliamentary terms so it is a different issue there. i mean, your challenge, obviously is to get the medium term agreement with the $4 trillion worth of savings that the president is is proposed. >> over ten years. >> over ten years, but you also have got to make sure that in the short-term, you don't strangle your economy. and what i can tell you is our experience is we have strangled our economy. so our debt is going up, when your economy shrinks by definition your debt to gdp ratio, your debt to national income ratio goes up instead of down. >> when we

candidate obama has not stopped talking about afghanistan this time around. candidate romney has said obama is not tough enough, but what he has called for has not been different in any substantive way. he has said that we should keep troops there, not a lot right away. president obama is not pulling out right away. >> the drone strikes a, on going in pakistan in yemen -- and yemen, at least 30,000 individuals have gone to pakistan at great personal risk to demonstrate against the spirit talk about the escalation of drone attacks under president obama. >> in many ways, this has become the signature war of president obama. this is the war he has given the most attention to, has escalated the most dramatically, not only in afghanistan, but also in yemen, somalia, reports of other lower-level drone strikes happening in other countries as well. the idea that this is cheap and safe -- meaning safe for u.s. pilots, as they are not in the air -- it turns out it is neither cheap are safe. manila get a new "times magazine" reports, it indicates that it actually costs more to keep an armed drone in t

other things republicans are doing to restrict the right to vote now. tavis: you mentioned texas. texas is one of those states that is not in play. we expect mr. romney will win that state. florida is a swing state. polls suggest the president is pulling away from mr. romney. it is in that too close to call category. take me inside florida and tell me what has happened on this issue. they are the ones, with their aggressive push, put this issue front and center for a lot of americans on the front pages of papers about this issue. >> it is amazing we are talking about voting controversies in florida in 2012, given what went on in 2000. it is staggering to think that florida could be going back to those days. but what happened is, after republican governor richard scott was elected in 2010, he and the republican legislature worked to reword clause and they made major changes. one was to put severe burdens on voter registration drives and prevent groups like the league of women voters from registering voters. that was enacted in 2011 and was blocked by the courts in may, 2012. for a

of this? >> i think it shaped some aspects of the political campaign going on right now. >> there what way. >> the sensitivity to the issues of inequality. mitt romney's remark about 47%. >> what did you read into that? >>. >> i read a lot. >>> what i read is a, he didn't understand what was really the economics of what was going on. because 47%, he said didn't pay income taxes. but many of those people pay payroll taxes. many of those are young people, old people, after all, many of the older people may not be paying income taxes now but they paid their social security contributions. and now they're getting back what they paid for. so to say that they were freeloaders was really denigrating a lifetime of work that they had contributed to. >> rose: where is the federal reserve in all of this? >> the federal reserve obviously wasn't doing what it should have done in the years before the crisis. >> it was paying too much attention to interest rates and not enough attention to employment. >> that was one of the problems. it was not paying enough attention to what the banks were doing

disingenuous. >> i think that was right. if he would call himself a latino, that 21% would go to 15. doesn't work that way. we have to find out who's the real mitt romney, the one who talked about that he didn't care about -- he didn't have to worry about the 47% of the people or the one who told us in a meeting that he wants to be the president for 100% of americans. that's the challenge for him? >> have you seen the ad by one of his sons? have you seen that ad. >> yes. yes. >> craig rom any. . >> it's very good. it's very, very good. now if all latino voters were to base their decisions solely on this one ad, i think romney's numbers would be much higher because he touched on the fact that his father was born in mexico, he touched upon the fact that his father wants a permanent solution to the immigration issue, but once they see interviews like ours, once somebody asks him to be more specific about latino issues, that's where he doesn't come through. >> at the end we are getting smarter. the hispanic community is getting smarter and more powerful and stronger because just a few y

or break the election of the romney/ryan ticket. it's about the economy and other issues that are more important. >> if it's supposed to -- and you're right, it's a base motivator but if it's supposed to be a base motivator and the polls show romney really falling behind at this point, is it going to help? >> i don't finish she falling behind. there are so many polls out there that you can look at. but it really -- >> most recent abc news, washington post, and those kind of polls have shown us is that activityically significant gap and in the battle ground states, it's even worse like in ohio. all of a sudden they were neck-and-neck and a few months ago, romney was ahead and obama is 6 or 7 points ahead. >> you have to look at enthusiasm in those numbers and i think that is where they are aiming for. pun intended. it's to keep those enthusiasm numbers high and they are very high. they are high or about at the point you want them the week or two before the election. they are that high. and i think ryan did this, i don't finish it was a political stunt as much as it was him showing

will be decided. >> finally, the right-wing shift of the court, and when a romney presidency would mean, and what a second term for president obama would mean, in terms of if one of the justices steps down. >> it is hard to talk about that. we do not wish bill on any of them, but i think if romney is elected president, he has the potential, given that there are urt, hetes on the cor certainly has the ability to cement the ultraconservative old in this court will into the next generation. if ruth bader ginsburg steps down, and she's has said that she will step down at some point, romney could certainly cement that shift for generations and generations. if obama is reelected and again, if ginsburg steps down, a likely, he would replace her with another woman, another moderate to liberal justice. i think we would see things pretty much stayed the way they have been over the past several years. this election has huge implications for the future of this country. i think a republican presidency could certainly alter the shift, cement it well into a right-leaning direction, for many years

, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you described, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high-income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it is math. >> mitt romney challenged obama's assertion that his tax plan would cost the country $five trillion in revenue, the knowledge to cut spending on government programs will drastically increasing funding for the military. in a jab that quickly exploded on twitter car romney told moderator jim le
